Whew, new book releases are coming your way. Chaos Earth® Resurrection™ nears completion, The Rifter® #71 & 72 Double Issue is well underway, and other titles and game materials are lining up for Rifts®, Palladium Fantasy® and Robotech® RPG Tactics™. There is not a lot of news this week as we’ve had our noses to the grindstone working on game materials for several game lines. I am happy to report that people really enjoyed last week’s Robotech® Flash Sale. Enjoy the news and update, while we get back to creating products. Game on!
UPDATE: Chaos Earth® Resurrection™ – October release
Chaos Earth® Resurrection™ nears completion. I expect Wayne and I will be laying it out by next weekend for an end of October release. I am truly delighted with the book. Not just because author Taylor White’s ideas rock, but because everyone who sees the artwork or reads any portion of the book is blown away by it. They love the twisted, Rifts® style zombies, the gruesome melding of technology with the monstrous, and the logic of how it all works. From a Game Master point of view, Ben Rodriguez and Chuck Walton were especially excited about the psychological horror elements of the setting and these particular zombies. Ben was funny and said, “Damn, all this makes me want to throw some dice, but I don’t have time right now.” I’m pleased by all of it and the fact that these very cool creations can be ported to Rifts® and other RPG settings across the Megaverse®.
I expect to get you a sneak preview of Chaos Earth® Resurrection™ in the next week or two as well. I’ve spent the entire week on the zombie descriptions and am about to dive into the last third of the book. Oh yeah.
